Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Bacon butties on white bread with homemade HP


You'll need

500 gm green bacon, cut into rashers 2 small loaves of soft white bread, thickly sliced, or 8 small soft white rolls For spreading: softened butter   HP sauce 2 tbsp olive oil ½ onion, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 200 ml apple cider vinegar 180 ml (¾ cup) tomato sauce 150 gm brown sugar, plus extra to taste 125 ml (½ cup) apple juice 125 ml (½ cup) malt vinegar 2 tbsp blackstrap molasses (see note) 1 tsp black peppercorns, coarsely ground ½ tsp ground cloves ½ tsp ground cardamom Pinch ground cinnamon

Method

  • 01
  • For HP sauce, heat oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat, add onion and garlic and stir occasionally until tender (7-8 minutes). Add remaining ingredients and simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced to a thick sauce consistency (45-50 minutes). Season to taste, adding a little extra vinegar or sugar to taste, and set aside to cool. Pour into a sterilised jar or container. Makes about 500ml. HP will keep refrigerated for a month.
  • 02
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add bacon rashers in batches and cook, turning once, until golden (3-4 minutes). Set aside and keep warm. Add bread slices to pan in batches and cook, turning once, until just golden (1-2 minutes). Spread with butter, top half the slices with bacon, drizzle with HP sauce, sandwich with remaining bread and serve warm.
Note Blackstrap molasses is available from select health-food shops.
